School boys from Kashiwa-no-ha, in Chiba prefecture, welcomed the All Blacks at their training camp with a spirited Haka performance.
A video of the boys’ Haka has already been seen by half a million people on Youtube.
The young Kotaro, 5th grade, also sent a cheerful and touching letter to the team, written in English, with the help of his teachers.
Kotaro’s story has been featured on Youtube as well.
We hope that Kotaro will fulfil his dreams and represent Japan with the Brave Blossoms in future Rugby World Cups.
Kia Kaha Kotaro!
